The General Mills Archives began in 1980 when artifacts were collected to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Gold Medal flour.

Located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, near the Mississippi River where it all started for us, the Archives department houses historical assets in a humidity- and temperature-controlled environment.

The General Mills Archives department provides a secure, central repository where historically significant records are preserved, interpreted and made available to further the study and understanding of General Mills’ vision and legacy.

The Archives staff is responsible for preserving historical materials regarding the company’s origins, growth, products and services.
